I love my husband dearly. I really do. But there is a list of things he does (or does not) do that can get on my last nerve at times. Usually when I'm tired, grumpy, and don't feel my best. As true as that is, there's something else that you can take to the bank: Denis has his own list of things I do (or don't do) that drives him around the twist. (He's English so I thought I'd throw in a bit of English slang.)
But something's going on here at Casa Kittling. Ceiling fans and lights are being turned off. Certain locks are being locked. Dishes are being put in the dishwasher. Is the man trying to lull me into a false sense of security?
While I'm pondering this, I'll head out to the corral for those links you came here for!
